A Poem for Mimi
This poem is for my Mimi. Mimi is my grandma. I love her dearly. She's been there for me since I was a baby, always showing me unconditional love. My life would not be the same without her in it. My husband and I are forever grateful for all of the homemade chicken noodle soup that she makes--but even more--we are thankful for her.
Through all the years—
Through laughter and tears—
Through dreams and through fears—
She's been a rock, stable and firm.
A teacher who helps others to learn.
A voice saying, "I'll help you through this next turn."
A heart that gives freely and doesn't make you earn.
Her love is strong.
It has endured for so long.
Her life sings a song:
"You have a place to belong."
Whether giving chili or soup, brownies or bread,
Her acts of kindness, through the fabrics of our lives,
Weave a valuable, irreplaceable, strengthening, thread.
Merry Christmas Mimi!
